The group exhibition Painting is dead, says who? in Kamera 8, curated by Anya von Gosseln has just come to an end. Its a really lovely gallery and I was delighted to be included in the show. I currently have a solo show in the Hook Lighthouse until November 12th, showcasing a new body of work based on my March 18 residency in Hong Kong and Macau. I was there as artist in residence by invitation of the Irish Asia Festival, with the kind support of the festial and of Culture Ireland. Whilst there I exhibited my work in a solo show in the Anita Chan Lai-Ling Gallery in the Fringe Club on Hong Kong Island (pls scroll down to see pics of the opening) - and showed in Creative Macau. Many thanks to Artlinks.ie for the bursary which has enabled me to make the work in the last few months since my return. I will be showing a piece in the Presentation Arts Centre during the Wexford Literary festival the first weekend in November. This is a fun iniative where myself and three other artists have been selected to make a piece of work in response to a piece of writing. More details to follow. In addition to the Living arts project residency (see below) I am honoured to be working as a facilitator within Wexford County Council's Arts Ability programme.
Delighted too to have been awarded a residency within a primary school in Wexford again for 2018/19 as part of the Living arts Project - which is a fantastic initiative run by the Wexford Arts Centre, Wexford County Council and the Arts Council of Ireland. This year I will am working with Ballymitty National School. In 2017/18 I took part in an exciting new strand of the project- which was run in secondary schools on a pilot bases. Through it I am worked with Selskar College in Wexford town.

In 2018 have also completed a residency with Carrigduff National School in Bunclody. This was through the artist/teacher partnership via Wexford Education Centre.
